Pear Lake Cabin

West Fraser has delivered the logs for the Pear Lake Cabin.

Band Members can fish starting July 03rd at 6:00 p.m.

The road to the fishing rock has been groomed with a D6 cat with band member Jerry LeBourdais guiding the operator through culturally sensitive areas.

You all know how steep and unforgiving the Fraser canyon is, so be careful and take your time.  Use the road at your own risk and always let others know when you do go down there, just in case we need to send help if you don't check in with anyone.  Best of luck fishing to all of you.

The window closure is intended to be in place during those times and areas where the sockeye are present and as such differ as you move through the watershed.  Please bear in mind that the end date of the closure may change if in-season information indicates that the sockeye are returning substantially later than thought based on pre-season information.  According to the chart it is July 31st at 6:00 p.m.  If this changes, we will advise immediately.

Passing of Former Chief

It is with great sadness to announce that Former Chief Andy Chelsea passed away yesterday, Tuesday, June 27th, at 5:00 pm. Sincere and heartfelt condolences to Andy Chelsea's family and all that knew him.
Chief and Council Activities

In addition to the regular management of individual portfolios, last week Chief and Council:
  • Chief and Council attended the National Aboriginal Business Opportunities Conference, where a number of key potential business relationships were struck.  
  • Construction and work opportunities are nearing for the Trans Mountain Pipeline.  Chief and Council have pre-qualified over 15 partners for work on the portions of the line in the northern portion of our territory.  Our band now has capacities to subcontract hundreds of disciplines required to build the pipeline.  Chief and Council have developed these partnerships and capacities to ensure that our band receives it rightful benefit as a result of the construction in our territory.
Thank You!
